Sony has been doing a good job keeping us up to date with highlight trailers of its Comic-Con panels. The latest one is for Naughty Dog's much-anticipated The Last of Us.
Creative director Neil Druckmann and director Bruce Straley told the audience about the inspirations behind the survival action-adventure. Apparently the idea for the nasty looking beasts came from BBC's Planet Earth series, which showed a deadly fungus that could take over insects' brains. The team ran with the idea, pondering the possibilities if the same horrifying thing could happen to humans.
Some of the game's actors also joined the stage. Actor Troy Baker (Joel), actress Ashley Johnson (Ellie) and W. Earl Brown (Bill) chatted about their roles and performance capture.
